in defense secretary leon panetta has asked that general john allen's nomination to be supreme commander put on hold. for patreaus, panetta asked whether any kags that his affair started when he was still in active duty. >> we obviously are going to watch this closely to determine just exactly you know when that took place. but i think right now my view is, let's see what the investigation turns up and what the congress, these committees are able to determine as to what exactly took place. >> so a friend of general patreaus says the affair starts two months after he took over as cia director and ended about four months ago. four days after the patreaus scandal broke, investigators are trying gather information. what we saw agents searching paula broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, the woman involved in the affair with patreaus. fbi spokeswoman would not say what they were actually looking for but you can see they're taking stuff out. seeing the agents carrying boxes and items out of her home last night. it's clear the scandal as it grows could have far-reaching implications. i wan

, as well. and also new this morning, defense secretary leon panetta is now asking whether the ethics training programs for military leaders are actually doing their job. and now he's ordering a review of the programs that are currently in place, just to find out if they're adequate. in a memo to the joint chiefs chairman, martin dempsey, secretary panetta said this, and i quote, "i seek your views on how to better foster a culture of value-based decisn-making and stewardship among senior generals and flag officers." cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly joins us now with more on the story. this is a request that perhaps may not have come to many as a surprise, suzanne. the microscope is blazing, and my assumption is, and i don't know what your sources are saying, they just don't want to screw anything up in this investigation. >> yeah, well, not only that, but you know, the broadening the culture, ashlie, as you mentioned with this memo is looking to see just how far something like this might spread. we certainly never expected to hear general allen's name pulled into anything

as tim geithner, leon panetta and now apparently eric holder is considering whether he will stay on as attorney general and ray lahood could be leaving the department of transportation. so is this shakeup as simple as cabinet members get burned out, need to step down and be replaced or is this a case of something more, julian? >> this is standard in every administration. these are very, very tough jobs. they are very demanding and taxing on a family. i think you see all-stars hillary clinton and tim geithner likely to leave. i think the interesting question, however, is whether the president will look to bring in republicans, people like chuck hagel, colin powell potentially in some of these positions and folks from the business industry, people like president of the xm bank and even michael bloomberg. the real thing i think we want to look for is will the president signal different directions by trying to bring in some republicans and people from the business community as well. >> there have been peripheral discussions whether mitt romney would be among those. is that realistic

know this. that we're likely to call leon panetta and general hamm and others in the armed services committee and i believe that the foreign relations committee would want to hear from secretary clinton and all those who are responsible for consulate security. the problem is that the thee committees will not be able to hear what the other groups are saying. i'd like to ask general petraeus t some questions and i'm sure there are people on the intel committee that would like to hear what the department of defense would like to say about their handling of the attack and why were there so many requests for additional security denied and the august 15th cable back to washington where chris stevens is telling secretary clinton, we've identified ten al-qaeda militia groups in benghazi. two of the ten we suspect were involved in the attack and close to the final paragraph, if there is a coordinated attack against the consulate, we cannot defend it. so four americans are dead. first ambassador is killed. i think this is a symptom of a greater problem in the mideast, quite frankly. for those

i always assumed wanted to be secretary of state could be the next secretary of defense leon panetta has made it clear he's ready to move on and go back to california after all these years in washington, former cia director, now the secretary of defense. i don't know how long that will last. but if kerry is nominated to be the secretary of defense, that does leave hillary clinton's job at the state department open. and susan rice was always -- at least i always believed she was the front-runner until those controversial comments she made about the benghazi killing of the u.s. ambassador and three other americans on those five sunday talk shows. and the republicans really have been going after her. and if the president stands firm and nominates her to be the next secretary of state, it will be a bruising confirmation hearing, there's no doubt about that. my p sense is, he probably wants her to be the secretary of state, but we'll see if -- how that confirmation process will go forward. the democrats do have the majority in the senate. i think it's going to be 55 if you bring in both o

. now that this has all broken, secretary panetta has gone to the president and asked that his nomination be put on hold. they're still keeping him as the head of nato because they've got another confirmation hearing for allen's successor. but right now this has really thrown the whole plan of succession into a state of flux right now. >> chris lawrence live at the pentagon. thanks so much. >>> now to more on this woman, jill kelley, tampa mother of three, married to a cancer surgeon. together they hosted parties attended by military leaders, including david petraeus. this is kelley leaving her bay front mansion yesterday. even though the family lives in florida, a government source says kelley is known as a member of washington's social circuit. reporter jason lanning is with affiliate bay news 9. he is standing outside the kelley home. tell us what you can. >> the pressure is building here in tampa, carol, for jill kelley. at the moment, things are quoit outside of the kelley home. the family has been keeping a fairly low profile. if you can see in the back alley of this home

damage that could take place. >> we know that u.s. secretary of defense leon panetta made that point to defense minister ehud barack saying it was important that there are surgical strikes, that you don't see these mass civilian casualties. do you think that's even possible here? do you think that they are heeding those warnings and that that perhaps would limit the amount of firepower, the amount of civilian casualties, and the escalation that could happen in the next hours and days to come? >> well, i know the israeli defense force, some of the now senior leaders, they will make every effort to employ precision-guided munition against known targets. the collateral damage, that is casualties that might be -- that the civilian population might incur as a result of these strikes, certainly goes into the calculation of the strikes, but it's necessary to go after those that are shooting rockets and, in fact, the networks where the insurgent activities are taking place, being planned, and then being launched. israel has to go after those. will there be collateral damage? the answer is ye

to step down. he was never really embraced by the intelligence community in the way that leon panetta and george tenet was in terms of their style and approach. but again, you can they if you want to say it but it is certainly not a reason that anyone would step down from their post. >> top of the hour. stay with me. to let you know what we are learning here, this news just in from washington. cia director david piskura etraeus submitted his resignation. apparently he stepped out on his wife. i showed poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. such behavior is unacceptable as a husband and as a leader in an organization such as ours. this morning the president graciously accepted my resignation. let's go to the pentagon for reaction. chris lawrence what what can you tell me about this. >> people are shocked and surprised. really couldn't believe it when they heard the news. you know, daivd petraeus has been married to his wife holly almost since he graduated from west point so many years ago. they have two years ago. holly has been an outspokened a ve kate for the troops. sh

lilg healthing hillary rodham clinton and leon panetta both expected to depart. likewise, the president might have to find replacement for treasury secretary timothy geithner and attorney general eric holder if they decide that they, too, would like to leave. toipt bring in our white house correspondent briana keiller to talk about just more on the president's plate here. how does this add to what he needs to get done starting in the next year? >> it really adds to it. i mean, you've got this issue, obviously, that comes after any re-election. the turnover of the cabinet, suzanne, but just think of the big plate that this is being added to. first offer, the fiscal cliff. that is obviously the biggest issue that president obama has to deal with. you're looking at tax cuts that expire at the very end of december, and then those spending cuts that are set to kick in on january 2nd. as he works, obviously, figuring out the new faces on his cabinet. he has his anything raugs on january 20th, and february is a big month as well. he needs to summit a budget at the beginning of the month. it's

it less serious. president obama, defense secretary panetta informed very quickly last thursday morning after this happened. the pentagon pledging to continue to conduct the missions and make no mistake. this might have been routine surveillance over the gulf but it was a classified military mission that the iranians went after. brooke? >> here we are on, what is this? thursday today and this was last thursday. was this kept quiet? >> reporter: yeah. it was. and the pentagon says the reason is it was a classified mission and they say they're not in the business of talking about it until, frankly, cnn reported it and they started getting questions from reporters about it. you know, look. the iranians know what they did and not a big secret from them. were they trying to shoot it down? how much do the iranians want to cause over those vital oil shipping lanes in the gulf right now, brooke? >> barbara starr, thank you very much, at the pentagon for us. >>> now president obama gets four more years in the white house. is it gridlock or does he have a new strategy perhaps for working with the

the possibility that senator john kerry could be nominated to replace, to succeed leon panetta as secretary of defense. >> i think that's true. they certainly weren't falling over themselves saying we would vote to approve john kerry if nominated, but they didn't have any kind of aversion to him either. he's one of the club here in terms of the senate club. but back to this whole question of susan rice, i think as i mentioned before, i was the one who provoked senator graham and senator mccain into talking about susan rice because the question that i asked was something i've been hearing from democrats, which is this, why are you so opposed to susan rice after she made some potentially incorrect or what now seemed to be incorrect statements publicly when they supported condoleezza rice back in the bush years for secretary of state after she clearly made incorrect public statements about weapons of mass destruction in iraq. and that's what provide voloked whole discussion. it comes to a question, it seems to me, certainly they're angry and these republican senators are calling for a select c
